Im sure Ive posted or seen a post about this in the past , but I cant find anything in search .Cant remember the answer, anyway. Did anyone else see a smallish fast flying plane go over Wirral this morning with wings sloping forward making it look like its going backwards . What is it?

If it was carrying a team of EU negotiators, it probably WAS going backwards!

I would hazard a guess at an EU Typhoon Euro fighter, delta winged with two small stubby wings aligned forwards.

Front wings are swept backward not forward
